Excellent sound quality! Very well played show too. IMO

Nice recording of this show. You can almost envision little hair dryers blowing the sound around, swirling over the sweltering crowd. Other than a fabulous Box of Rain (wishful thinking by Phil), a killer Cassidy, a Terrapin that had numerous "fake" endings and a Not Fade Away that the band tried to end several times (the crowd kept on singing...), I don't remember a thing! Oh, everybody started "mooing" as we were herded back into the parking grounds. Got Dead?

I was in attendance...It was certainly hot...The five stars are mostly made in the first set with a solidly played yet lacking on quality song choice second set. Feel Like a Franklin's, a nice mid set Box of Rain and Bruce were the Highlights...It was a "long, long crazy summer afternoon..." Enjoy!!!!

June 25, 1988 is a date that is permanently burned into my mind. This was my first show and it was also the hottest day in Ohio's history. It was 105 that day. The temperature might have dropped to the low 90's by showtime. Despite the oppressive heat, I had a great time.

I think this show was pretty strong, as I listen to it today. The problem at the time was, the second set had too many repeats not to be a disappointment, if you happened to have attended the Alpine run before (as I had). I remember thinking the first set was the best of the tour so far (I had missed MN). Then being tremendously let down by the second set. All repeat performances from the Alpine run (the third Foolish Heart), the Terrapin>Drums>Space>Other One>Wharf Rat was a song for song repeat of a medley they'd played in a single show at alpine (night 2, I think), and Throwin'>NFA was also a "medley repeat" from Alpine, as well.
When I hear it now, though, I think the second set passes the energy test. If you don't like the "Built to Last" songs, well, this show won't change your mind, and these songs ended up being more developed as jam vehicles later on (although I prefer the early Foolish Hearts over later ones), but none of these versions are weak. I still think the first set really makes the show, however. Lackluster my arse! A great Deal, Hornsby adds to the songs he guests on in a very good way, lots of nice Jamming. I'd call the first set a must have, get the second set if you don't mind a front-load of "Built to Last" material. The second set song list may have been unimaginative and stale to tour-heads (as it ws to me at the time), but the fact is they deliver good to great versions of all the songs played. An underrated show.

After many years, here is a solid sounding source. Lackluster? Not true, go back and listen to Set I. Hornsby playing on Sugaree and Memphis Blues is sweet! The Victim and Knockin' On Heaven's Door are nice as well. Although it's not a great show, this one can't be written off that easily. Thanks to the TAPERS!

After a great run at Alpine the boys showed up to Buckeye. Not a great venue by any means and kind of a lackluster show filled with the "new songs".
